Bluetongue risk remains low

AHPA continue to report on the risk level to UK producers of Bluetongue infection in the UK. The current risk is considered to be low with no further cases of Bluetongue detected along the North coast of France where possible migration of midges could cause spread to the UK. AHPA will provide fortnightly reports throughout the vector season (When midges have potential to spread disease).

For further details on the current risk level can be found at www.gov.uk/government/publications/bluetongue-virus-btv-8-in-france
